Direct Access

Hopefully by now everyone knows about DirectAccess when using Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

The Direct Access Design Guide (download) will help answer the “What,” “Why,” and “When” questions a deployment design team (you have one of those teams – right?) might ask before deploying DirectAccess in a production environment.

The Design Guide will also help you learn about “the advantages, disadvantages, requirements, recommendations, and design considerations for deploying DirectAccess.”
